“Our life is an endless journey; it is like a broad highway that extends infinitely into the distance. The practice of meditation provides a vehicle to travel on that road. Our journey consists of constant ups and downs, hope and fear, but it is a good journey. The practice of meditation allows us to experience all the textures of the roadway, which is what the journey is all about.” - Chögyam Trungpa

What a wonderful well told beautiful story. This book is woven with insight and love. I absolutely loved this book! A wonderful read. I highly recommend this book.

“It‘s Rule Number Forty,” she said slowly. ‘A life without love is of no account. Don‘t ask yourself what kind of love you should seek, spiritual or material, divine or mundane, Eastern or Western. . . . Divisions only lead to more divisions. Love has no labels, no definitions. It is what it is, pure and simple.”

I found this book very interesting and helpful in my pursuit of starting to write myself. It has a very unique take on the writing process and what keeps us from it and what helps us along. It did help me break through my block and win my inner creative battle. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

“Creative work is not a selfish act or a bid for attention on the part of the actor. It‘s a gift to the world and every being in it. Don‘t cheat us of your contribution. Give us what you‘ve got.” p. 165

“Angels are like muses. They know stuff we don‘t. They want to help us. They‘re on the other side of a page of glass, shouting to get our attention. But we can‘t hear them. We‘re too distracted by our own nonsense. Ah, but when we begin. When we make a start. When we conceive an enterprise and commit to it in the face of fears, something wonderful happens.”

quote

“Angels are agents of evolution. The Kabbalah describes angels as bundles of light, meaning intelligence, consciousness. Kabbalists believe that above every blad of grass in an angel crying “Grow! Grow!” I‘ll go further I believe that above the entire human race is one super-angel, crying “Evolve! Evolve!”

I ended up loving this book! I wasn‘t sure it was for me in the beginning chapters but by the second half I was entranced and wanted to hear the end of the story. What a beautiful, touching, inspiring and empowering memoir. I highly recommend for women to read this book. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Love Warrior: A Memoir | Glennon Doyle Melton

“Finally, I was being quiet and still enough to hear the truth: You are not supposed to be happy all the time. Life hurts and it‘s hard. Not because you are doing it wrong, but because it hurts for everybody. Don‘t avoid the pain. You need it. It‘s meant for you. Be still with it, let it come, let it go, let it leave you with the fuel you‘ll burn to get your work done on this earth.” P. 203

“The process of knowing and loving another person happens for me through conversation. I reveal something to help my friend understand me, she responds in a way that assured me she values my revelation, and then adds something to help me understand her. This back-and-forth is repeated again and again as we go deeper into each other‘s hearts, minds, pasts, and dreams. Eventually. A friendship is built— a solid, sheltering structure that exists p 94

Wanderer18 ... in the space between us— a space outside of ourselves that we can climb deep into. There is her, there is me, and then there is our friendship— this bridge we‘ve built together.” p.94 2y

When Breath Becomes Air | Paul Kalanithi

This book was a heavy contemplation of death from the point of view of a doctor who then becomes a patient at a young age. Well written and very thoughtful, I enjoyed this read. I haven‘t ventured to read many books dealing with mortality but this was an easy to read beautiful account of a life grappling with death.

Josee.lit.a.lu.et.lira This one is on my TBR. The tagged book Is in a similar reflexion category and was great. 2y
melissajayne Balled my eyes out as I finished it. 2y
violabrain Such a beautiful, heartbreaking, life affirming book! 2y
Smrloomis I loved this too - despite how sad it was! 💓 And I‘m with @Josee.a.lu.lit.et.lira Being Mortal is also excellent. (edited) 2y

I enjoyed this novel and the tidbits of wisdom along the way. The story kept me interested and I finished it much faster than other books I‘ve tried reading so that must mean it was a good read! Lol. I enjoy his style of writing and the insights he shares in this book.

“...sometimes you have to travel a long way to find what is near. When the rain returns to earth, it brings with it the things of the air. The magical and the extraordinary are with me and with everyone in the Universe all the time, but sometimes we forget and need to be reminded, even if we have to cross the largest continent in the world from one side to the other. We return laden with treasures that might end up buried again...” p. 255

Wanderer18 “... and then we will have to set off once more in search of them. That‘s what makes life interesting— believing in treasures and in miracles.” p.255 3y

Here‘s to reading at the beach during my last few days of summer! I hope to continue reading as much as I have been recently when I go back to work. There is certainly something magical about books and their ability to transport you to different worlds entirely. Swimming with dolphins 🐬 in the wild and getting to lay on the beach soaking up the sun while reading an amazing book = paradise 🏝

The Washington Post writes “Spiritualists and wanderlusts will eagerly devour... [Coelho‘s] search for all things meaningful.” I consider myself both and they are right about this book. I‘m almost halfway through and really soaking it up! I feel like I‘m turning over a new leaf in my reading- devoting more time and energy to books and reading. I always say how much I love books and can often be found in a bookstore now I‘m putting that into action

As of yesterday I‘m officially a library user! I‘m so excited to have access to ALL these books. The library app is great and I‘ve found many books I want to read. I‘m hoping this latest move to join the library gets me reading way more than I have been.

wanderinglynn Yay for libraries! 🙌🏻🎉 3y
